SIIG JU-NE0411-S1 USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapter
SIIG JU-NE0411-S1 USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet Network Adapter

Pros: Everything in the previous reviewer's post establishes that this adapter works as intended, yet he gives the adapter a ONE EGG rating because it doesn't work when used in a manner which IT WASN'T DESIGNED FOR! If you don't understand how computers function, don't punish the manufacturer when you can't make something work.

Cons: SIIG's only problem was assuming that a person buying this product understands certain basic computer concepts.

Overall Review: I think the one egg review should be removed for it's shocking level of inaccuracy. OF COURSE it's not going to work when plugged into some random devices! It isn't a passive cable, or some magical USB to ethernet 'converter' box (as if something like this existed)... it's a USB network adapter. I would suggest enrolling in some computer classes at your local community college if this still does not make any sense.

The RW heads fall off!

Seagate BarraCuda Green ST1500DL003 1.5TB 5900 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: Cheap junk. A great way to throw away some money, and lose up to 1500 GB of data. Do you hate your data?

Cons: Cheap junk. These drives are terrible. Just save yourself the pain and don't buy this garbage. Seagate may send you a replacement drive, but the data is never coming back.

Overall Review: My Seagate 1.5TB drive was in an internal enclosure I got 4 months ago for $70. It died last week, with 800GB of ripped movies on it. I disassembled the drive, and took the cover off the bare drive. I took pics of the actuator arms and RW heads... they FELL OFF... Really... THEY FELL OFF THE ARMS!! I've never even moved the drive. It failed sitting in a well-ventilated PC. It never exceeded 45 degrees C! The heads simply decided to fall off the arms and take 800 gigs of data with them. I attached a photo of the failure.

Great deal.

Pros: Faster than the 250GB 5400 RPM drive it replaced.

Cons: Hitachi has been going through some troubles lately. I've been buying them for a while, without any issues

Overall Review: Runs cooler than my old drive, too.

Working nicely
